BATON ROUGE, LA (WECT) - The UNCW Seahawks fell to the LSU Tigers 2-0 on Saturday while playing in the Baton Rouge Regional.
LSU's Alex Lange shutout the Seahawks, who were on a seven-game winning streak. He struckout 12 and walked two in the game.
Evan Phillips allowed one run on eight hits and finished the game with three strikeouts.
LSU got three consecutive hits off Phillips to lead off the 7th inning; the third hit from LSU's Chris Chinea would lead to the first score of the game.
